There is only one word that can describe this piece: Amazing.
I use this as the Lockscreen/Springboard wallpaper on my iPod Touch If only there was a desktop wallpaper of this, I would just gaze at my monitor for hours, there's something about it that just captures you.
And yeah, many have asked for some wallpaper-versions of some of these older space-pics, some I was able to deliver but some not, since I lost a small part of my files ages ago when one hard-drive crashed.
Unlucky. I hate hard-drive failure, and sorry to hear about that. I had it happen to me once; i had a 400GB external hard-drive that I put EVERYTHING on, such as programs and music etc, to keep my main c:/ drive with as much space as possible. One day it just decided to... stop.
this is my favourite art piece from your gallery.
the simplicity is eye catching, yet it is packed with many details.
and the blue tone is wonderful... it almost seems to be frozen.
i am a big fan of planet pictures
all of your space art is lovely and this one especially.
i also noticed that you have a stock account with some great stuff. be prepared that i use them some day! i hsve be looking for good printable space images for a while.
what about the resources that you submitted to =resurgere? can they also be used for devprints? their policy says no commerical use until the original artists agrees.
The stuff at my own stock is free game for prints, unless otherwise mentioned in the description of the stockpieces. Printspermissions for the use of the cosmospack are possible too, but much harder to get. It took much longer to make the pieces, so the artwork using it needs to be somewhat high-quality, and something that really shows that the artist took proper time creating it.
I scream a lot at the computer. Hmm, but the nebulae/lighting etc. are pretty much always apophysis-renders put together and furher manipulated in photoshop. Just compiling them on top of each other, changing the layermodes etc. Stars & planets and the way they´re done keep often changing, I really don´t have anything solid & chosen technique for them. Just a lot of experimentation & patience I guess.
Nope, haven´t done any tutorials about spacework, and propably never will. The way I build them keeps changing all the time anyway, so it´s hard to explain it in a tutorial, when I don´t what I´m doing either.
i've had a couple people mentions jewelry tutorials...but for one, you can find jewelry how-to's EVERYWHERE...plus, I don't feel like remembering to take a picture after every move I make...kinda ruins the whole thing for me...
